will give the Celtics
“every chance of re-signing him,” but has been in contact with the
top-tier free agents and wants to wait until they choose a team before
making a decision, a person with knowledge of the situation told
Allen’s conversations with Celtics
brass have been “productive and cordial,” the person said. But Allen,
like other free agents, can’t have a complete picture of his value or
the best situation for him until the likes of LeBron
Wade and Chris Bosh
decide where to sign. It is not clear whether Allen, 34, has spoken
with those players, but a person close to one high-profile free agent
said Allen has been in contact via text message as the Big Three try to
assemble a supporting cast for next season and beyond.
This is where idiots like Kahn in Minnesota will screw us. Ray is going to get way too much money somewhere. The question now becomes will it be in Boston. How far do the C's go before this becomes James Posey episode 2?
